Join the competition and become a Champion!



Are you an organization that supports smallholder farmers? Are you a non-governmental organization that empowers small businesses and entrepreneurs working in agriculture and food systems through your development work? Are you a small business connecting smallholder farmers to international markets?

Become a Small Business Champion!

Launched for the first time in 2021, the World Trade Organization’s Informal Working Group of Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, together with the International Chamber of Commerce and the International Trade Centre, calls for your innovative ideas that help smallholder farmers go global through trade.

The winning proposals will be announced on MSME Day, 27 June, held virtually with the heads of all three organizations.

With this competition, your ideas will not only raise awareness of the difficulties smallholder farmers and businesses are facing when it comes to accessing finance and infrastructure but will also promote best practices in international trade, business innovation and resilience.
